– Daniel Cormier isn’t getting a fight against Brock Lesnar and that’s left a little disappointed. Instead, Cormier will once again fight Stipe Miocic, who he beat last year to win the UFC Heavyweight Title. Speaking to Ariel Helwani (via MMAWeekly), Cormier discussed the Miocic fight and a potential third fight against Jon Jones.

On Stipe Miocic: “I just don’t know how I can beat him better than I beat him last time. It’s tough to top how I did it last time. I do intend on beating him again. Stylistically, it’s a good match-up for me. I just feel I’m a better mixed martial arts than Stipe. I knew if I wasn’t gonna fight Brock, it was gonna have to be him and he deserved that”

On Jon Jones: “It’s all I want. I think when I fight Jones, I feel most complete when I’m preparing for a competition against that guy. It’s makes me train harder. It makes me train smarter. If I do stick around, that would be the fight that I would do it for.It would have to be at 205 pounds because I need to go and get that back from him. I don’t need the deck stacked in my favor. My whole life I have overcome odds. I have to get it right and I have to get it right on the same terms. There’s a fight out there and it will be him and I again at 205 pounds.”
